    signed, but by WHO? i can't read it. 'Maneke'? 'Manske'? it's a nice little gouache and it has age to it - maybe 1960s or 70s? this view is from a southern point of Rio - a different perspective than the traditional images.

      Solved! i found this on a page of South American artists: ' Reinaldo Manzke was born in Santa Catarina, Brazil in 1906 and died in Brazil in 1980. He was a well known Brazilian artist. He received many awards for his work. His first training as an artist was in the convent of Saint Antonio in Blumenau, under professor of drawing and painting Frei Genésio Hansen O.F.M. He later studied in São Paulo and Rio De Janeiro, dedicating himself especially to the medium of watercolor. His first individual exposition was in São Paulo, in 1939, repeating in 1945/46/48. He was awarded prizes by the National Museum of Fine Arts of Rio De Janeiro and by the government of São Paulo. Some information indicates that he may have sold his work directly to tourists in the hotels of Rio de Janeiro accounting for the fact that his art can be found fairly easily in the United States. He is mentioned in Painters of Brazil by Teodoro Braga and Davenport's Art Reference and Price Guide. Despite the fact that his work is very well done, it does not sell for great amounts in the US, so far.'
